Is it possible to perform validations on HABTM associations?  That is,
if I have a table like:
   person_id
   place_id
   comment

I want to 'push_with_attributes' and set the comment field.  Can I do a
validation on the comment field such as validates_presence_of?

Since the association doesn't have a model, where does this validation
go?

I think that the path of least resistence would be to introduce a
model object for the relation if you need to doing validation and
other model-like behaviour.
